Christians who read this: Share the news about Jesus and let the chips fall where they may!Mark is emphasizing the need for all Christian to speak, and he is right, but I want to emphasize the need for truth.
And by that I do not mean doctrinally correct statements of our personal theology - I mean TRUTH - the kind of truth you can only speak about someone you are intimately familiar with - the kind of truth that comes from experience, not knowledge.
The apostles were apostles becasue they knew Christ personally. They changed the world becasue they knew Christ personally. They had not developed systematic theology yet, but they did hold the truth. We are offered the chance to know Christ personally too - not face-to-face, not yet, but personally. All we have to do is let Him in.
Are you prepared to speak the truth? Do you know Christ well enough to testify to that truth?
